It isn’t called Strawberry Fool for nothing. This effortless recipe is perfect for mid-week, when time is limited.

Serves 4

2 punnets (500g) medium-sized

strawberries, hulled

¾ cup caster sugar

300ml sour cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 egg whites

1 Halve strawberries lengthways and put in a saucepan with ¼ cup of the sugar. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves and strawberries soften. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate.

2 Whisk sour cream and vanilla together until combined. Using an electric hand-beater, beat egg white 
until soft peaks form. Continue 
beating, adding remaining sugar, 
1 tbsp at a time, until well combined 
and meringue is thick and glossy. 
Add a large spoonful of meringue to sour cream mixture. Gently stir until combined. Add remaining meringue to sour cream mixture.

3 To serve, fold cold strawberries into sour cream mixture. Spoon into 4 individual glasses and drizzle with strawberry juice.
